Another strangely addictive posting from the blog set in the year 2049 (p40y.com)
Ridiculous. I couldn’t do anything today because of an ant. The kitchen was full of them so I wiped them all up with a dishcloth, threw them into the sink and turned the hot coffee tap on. They all drowned except for one with a very large head. It had climbed up to the very top of the dishcloth and sat there surrounded by a sea of coffee. I was going to save it on the basis of sheer tenacity but when I came back to the sink two minutes later it was dead. I feel terrible. Here was an ant with drive and determination and I killed it. I am the ant bully.
Off to Shanghai for a few days tomorrow for the 165th Hospices De Beaune wine tasting. I got a special offer about this on my AiPhoneâ„¢, which had predicted that I would be interested in going having tracked my movements in and around Beaune last year. I think my voice conversations about my love affair with French reds probably triggered something in the phone company database too.
My favourite wine last year was the 2044 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Cuvée Madeleine Collignon followed by the 2045 Mersault Genevrieres 1er Cru Cuvée Philippe Lebon although I still haven’t got over the Chinese guy that diluted his wine with organic Coca-Cola.
